There will be an opportunity to learn about some of the notable people associated with Thorney through the interactive display as well as view census research work carried out by our local schools and listen to guest speakers.

Professor Patricia Fara (University of Cambridge) talks about the History of Science (linked to the profile of Mary Smith and her 1770 Commonplace book).
